Impacts of Globalization

Laoag City, Ilocos Norte
According to Danev (2017), the process of globalization has widely increased the
availability of information for people across the world. By the use of internet and advanced
mobile services, people are able to discuss business plans and proposals on an international level
as well as exchange data securely. Global communication services have also contributed to the
enlightenments and development of the political process in a number of states.
Danev (2017) also enumerates the three major impacts of globalization on global
communication and identifies the major problem, as follows:
1. Availability of Information
The availability of information is a major effect of the process of globalization. The
World Health Organization, it is works focused on the cultural dimensions of globalization, has
expressed the view that with the spread of business delivering internet, satellite TV and mobile
services, the costs of such information technologies drop. The decreased price makes it easier
for people across the world to make use of the World Wide Web and the resources available.
2. Business Conduct
Globalization has influenced global communication by implementing new technologies
for business conduct among workers at international corporations. Long-distance travels are no
longer necessary for business people should they require a meeting with a partner overseas.
Internet technology makes it possible to exchange business information and conduct video
conference. Additionally, enhanced communication allows businesses to promote their products
more efficiently in the international market. This significantly changed the business world.

3. Social Awareness
The availability of information, which is a direct effect of the development of global
communication systems, has led to increased social awareness of people across the world.
Information technology and networks enable them to share opinions, views, work on projects
and research different areas. These are among the main reasons why the process of
globalization is creating a sense of a global society. For example, through the use of
communication, man students from the developing countries enroll in university degrees in the
developed world.
Education is only a single sector of the social awareness. Other effects, like social
determination have also occurred – the political unrest in Tunisia in the beginning of 2011 has
been inspired by opinions and political considerations shared over the social networks available
on the web.
2. The Problem
Despite its quick spread and continuous development, global communication has not
reached the majority of people on all continents. The World Health Organization indicates that
at least 70 percent of all people in Africa will never make a single phone call or use Internet.
This points out the need of a more extensive application of communication technologies as part
of the process of globalization.
